End of an era…

The venerable Boeing 747 is no longer in passenger service with any American airline… Full article, HERE. Sigh… The first time I flew on one was 1972, with Braniff. It was a brand new (1 year old SP-1 747). And … Continue reading

Back to reality…

Playtime and time with the kids and grandkids is over, way too soon. But I hear my bed calling, and it will be nice to not get woken up by a cold nose or slobbery lick at way to early … Continue reading
